DEEP REGRET

Life isn’t always rosy… “Deep Regret” is the second song on the album to express feelings of regret and sadness. It reflects the desperation of separation from a loved one; even if you are one of the reasons for that abandonment…

The song consists of three stanzas and three chorus parts. In fact, while the third chorus should have come right after the third stanza, during the first recording of the song, I accidentally went on playing and singing an instrumental part right after the third stanza. I liked the mistake I made… “This mistake has given a good result,” I said to myself and did not correct what I saw as a mistake.

The following instruments were used in the studio recordings of the song:

  •  Acoustic guitar
  • Acoustic Dobro Guitar
  • Double bass
  • Harmonica
  • Percussion instruments

The Lyrics

DEEP REGRET

I HAD TO TAKE A DEEP BREATH BEFORE I COULD THINK AGAIN

OF WHAT SHE SAID TO ME AND CLOUDS COVERED THE SKY.

SHE SAID, “I’M LEAVING YOU, LEAVING YOU ON YOUR OWN!

AND DON’T YOU REALIZE, OH, WHAT YOU’VE DONE TO ME?”

CHORUS

SHE IS LEAVING HOME; SHE’S LEAVING FOR GOOD.

EVERYTHING IS MEANINGLESS AND EVERYTHING IS PALE.

I HAD TO TAKE A LONG WALK BEFORE IT REALLY SANK IN,

THE FACT THAT SHE IS LEAVING ME, LEAVING ME ON MY OWN.

WILL I WAKE UP WITHOUT HER, TAKE MY COFFEE ALONE?

CAN ANYBODY HELP ME TO BRING HER BACK HOME?

CHORUS

SHE IS LEAVING HOME; SHE’S LEAVING FOR GOOD.

EVERYTHING IS MEANINGLESS AND EVERYTHING IS PALE.

IT TOOK ONLY ONE DAY BEFORE I REALIZED

THAT I HAD TO DO IT, DO IT ON MY OWN.

I REALLY WANT HER TO BE THE ONE I CARE FOR…

I TRULY WANT HER TO BE THE ONE I’D DIE FOR…

CHORUS

SHE IS LEAVING HOME; SHE’S LEAVING FOR GOOD.

EVERYTHING IS MEANINGLESS AND EVERYTHING IS PALE.
